“Very nice with a glitch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The HI is an excellent place to stay. The staff is very helpful. The beds are comfortable and clean. The building is clean, well kept, and maintained. The breakfasts are good, with plenty to eat. The building is situated close to many activities and near a street lined with stores and restaurants of all kinds. Still, the place is secluded at the entrance to a business center, and is very quiet and serene.

The only glitch is the internet, which tends to disconnect you every few minutes. If you don't need a solid connection to the outside world, this is an ideal place to stay. If you plan to do business while in your room and need a worry-free connection, bring along your own wireless phone connection.

Hello! Thank you for your kind review. I wanted to apologize for the inconvenience of the internet knocking you offline. We have put in a call to our ISP and our in house tech department to review the activity logs on our network to make sure there isn’t an issue we need to resolve. Rest assured we will take care of anything we find out of place. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay, and hope you come back real soon!

It's decent and comfortable hotel. Since we checked in late, the only room available was a king size bed, with a pull out sofa-bed. Boy are those pull out sofas uncomfortable! I've slept on a number of pull out sofa-beds in my day, but this had to be the most uncomfortable ever!

The complimentary hot breakfast was nice.

My only gripe was when I went to iron my shirt, apparently the water had been sitting in the iron for god knows how long, and may not have been used in quite some time, it left rust colored streaks all over my shirt.

Oh My. I am so sorry to hear about your rough nights sleep on the sofa sleeper! We are not in the business of having our guests have a bad night. That is bad for business! Thank you for your comments, and rest assured I will be pulling in resources to get this comment resolved. Please come back and see us again soon, and this time we will make sure we get you in a Double Queen room.

We will definitely stay at this hotel in the future. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were very comfortable. We also found the front desk to be very helpful. It is a great value, especially for such a wonderful hotel, and we would highly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed here several times! It is close to our kids' place. We stay here when we visit them as their place is too small for all of us.

Always an awesome staff. The complimentary breakfast has hot items like scrambled eggs. Quiet!

We stayed on second floor this time and the bed was hard. The beds on the 3rd and 4th floor are not as hard. So, request a floor based upon your preferences.

My family, including 2 teenage girls, stayed here when we visited Busch Gardens. We stay in many area hotels when we use our annual pass. This is a nice hotel, clean, quiet and they have a friendly staff. It is located about 10 minutes away from Busch Gardens so it is out of the hustle and bustle of that area. The room was very clean and beds were comfortable. Overall a nice stay for a good rest. No frills.

Hello! Thank you for your review. We all work hard here to keep the hotel clean, and fresh. And I am glad you mentioned our out of the way feel, while still being close to area attractions. We think we are the ideal place to stay when visiting USF, or the Tampa Bay area in general. We hope you come back soon!
